AN AUSTRIAN soccer player has received an extraordinary 70-match ban for headbutting a referee.

Ismail Gunduz, who plays amateur soccer with the SK Rum team, earned the harsh penalty when he reacted angrily to being show a yellow card during a match against SPG Innsbruck West, the BBC reports.

"We distance ourselves from Ismail Gunduz's behaviour," Rum coach Michael Messner said. "He was thrown out of the club with immediate effect."

The punishment was handed down by the Tirol Football Association, along with a 257 euro ($369) fine to the club.

"The barrier of 70 games is certainly a high punishment, but on account of the various witnesses' questionings also defensible," Tirol FA spokesman Horst Scherl told BBC Sport.

In his own defence, Gunduz claimed to have slipped. "This sentence is madness," he said.

"I will do all I can to return to the pitch."

Tirol FA said the player's behaviour could have cost him up to 78 matches.
